Contributing sentiments towards policy:

58% : Christina Huang, an 18-year-old freshman from West Milford, New Jersey, who is co-director of UNC for Affirmative Action, said diversity on campus enriches the learning environment for all students, even outside the classroom.
54% : But she is taking part in the North Carolina case, which strongly suggests the court would use that case if it ends up making a major pronouncement on affirmative action.
50% : Joy Jiang, a 19-year-old sophomore from Harrisburg, North Carolina, and co-director of the affirmative action group, said recent racial tensions on campus that she described as a backlash after the statue came down, have scared away some students of color from vocalizing their support for affirmative action.
49% :On a recent, brilliant fall day in Chapel Hill, students talked about what they see as the benefits and drawbacks of affirmative action in college admissions.
44% : Students for Fair Representation also makes repeated use of the June decision to overturn Roe v. Wade's constitutional protection for abortion to bolster its arguments that the court should jettison its affirmative action precedents.
41% : Affirmative action, he said, "unfairly disadvantages some individuals over other individuals based on race."
39% : "I think there's a negative connotation of affirmative action and this idea that it's a quota and it's hurting Asian Americans," said Huang, a first-generation college student who is studying political science.
20% : In California, the same electorate that gave President Joe Biden a 5-million-vote margin over Trump in 2020 handily rejected a proposal to revive affirmative action.
